Classic Egg Salad

April 8, 2010

The final installment in my post-Easter egg-athon. (All 36 eggs are gone!)

I wanted a very light dinner, and simultaneously wanted to free up the refrigerator space from the Easter Egg cartons. Taking just 15 minutes (because my eggs were already hard-boiled), mince 1/4 of a red onion, 1/2 stalk of celery, and 1 tablespoon of parsley. Add 1/4 cup mayo, 2 tsp dijon, 2 tsp lemon juice, and salt and pepper.

The last of the Easter eggs went to this delicious egg salad sandwich

The result was so delicious that I almost wish I had more Easter eggs. 5-star.

Issues:

  1. I put lettuce on top and bottom of sandwich, but the egg salad slid off the slippery lettuce and made the sandwich messier to eat. Next time, I’m only going to put lettuce on top.
  2. I already had the lettuce, celery and parsley, otherwise it would have cost twice as much.

Rating: 5-star.
Cost: $2.50.
How much work? Low.
How big of a mess?  Low.
Started: 5 pm Ready:  5:15.
